A quicky based on a conversation Tom and I had a year ago.
Galactus is a problem. In comics he's fantasic, a giant purple techno-demi-god that stands around vaguely menacing planets. When it comes to translating him into movie form, or even movie-caliber comic form (Ultimate: Galactus) he's been turned into a space-dust-storm and swarm of giant metal bugs respectively.
Tom suggested I read up on his backstory, and it turns out that Galactus is the only living creature to have lived before our universe and survive the big bang.
We may have been a little hopped up on Hellboy, but we started thinking it would be great if Galactus looked alien, ancient, and gargantuan. He could be loosely human shaped, enough that legends of him could have mistaken him for a massive man.

Okay, so the Tablet I picked up is the ASUS Eee Slate EP121. I've been loving the mobility. It works like a charm, it's got the blue tooth key board so I don't get slowed down trying to work around all my hotkeys and shortcuts.
For this one, I think there's a spectrum of complexity when it comes studies and I wanted to try something more complex. This is trying to translate reference material into my typical concept art "blueprint" style instead of a quicker traditional painting approach.
In order to familiarize myself with the new tablet I've been doing some photo-reference work. New medium = time to do some life drawing. Observational drawing forces you to really open up on a new medium, giving you challenges you wouldn't have chosen for yourself.
